I haven’t blogged in a while (i.e. two months), so here’s a happy link as a form of my dearest apologies: https://youtu.be/vSlWDlXCelk
Yesterday, I visited the Dallas Arboretum for the first time in ages. The last time I’ve been was when I was in kindergarten; time flies so quickly! Starting from parking, we could notice a difference–a brand new, five-story parking garage was built across the street, and a tunnel connecting it to the arboretum was built as well. Inside, the arboretum showed off even-more grandiose features, such as elaborate water features and terracing. The neat and prim order of all the different flowers and hedges and trees gave me an otherworldly sense, a fantasy of perfectionism. It felt good to indulge in such beauty for a morning, but if I were a garden, I would be unpruned, wild, natural–just like how I am free-flowing, outgoing (only with the right people), and spontaneous as a person. However, I still hope to visit the Dallas Arboretum throughout this year as quick respites from my upcoming year from H-E-double hockey sticks!
